We Are Marshall

A movie directed by Joseph McGinty

Rebuilding a team

  • Nov 1, 2008
  • by
Another movie based on sports
This time a football team
That rose up from the ashes
Of the ending of a dream

The Thundering Herd was heading home
And then disaster hit
Their plane came in a bit too low
And sadly, that was it

The board that ran the college tried
To shut the program down
But had to reconsider
When petitioned by the town

They had to find a new head coach
Who could rebuild the Herd
And when they hired Lengyel the
Impossible occurred

He found he had to bend the rules
And change the plays he'd planned
The NCAA waived the rule
That freshman should be banned

It's not a Cinderella tale
It took them years to train
A team that Marshall would be proud
To call their own again

McConaughey is pretty good
And so is Matthew Fox
Compared to other sports-based films
I'd say this movie ROX!

It is rare these days that a movie is deep and meaningful enough to elicit genuine emotion. We are Marshall (2006), which chronicles the horrible plane crash that took the lives of 75 people in 1970 including (almost) the entire Marshall University football team, and it aftermath, is …
